Hi, Greetings from the Piedmont area of North Carolina. Thanks for looking me up - I hope it's because we are having a QSO. It's nice to meet you!

The station equipment I'm using for our QSO:

  • Flexradio 5000A
  • SPE Expert 1K-FA solid state amplifier

Antennas:

  • Hexbeam for 20-17-15-12-10 meters (30 feet high)
  • R5 vertical for 20-17-15-12-10 meters (22 feet high)
  • Inverted Vee dipoles for 40 and 30 meters (25 feet high)
  • 105 foot centerfed wire for all bands (30 feet high)
  • PAR OA-50 Omniangle for 6 meters (20 feet high)

The short story:

  • Born and raised in Wyoming, initially licensed as Novice class KN7JNX in 1959
  • Upgraded to Conditional in 1960 (equivalent of General Class for those of us living in the boondocks)
  • Upgraded to Advanced in 1977
  • Finally upgraded to Amateur Extra in 2010

 

Then and Now QSL images

 

After having been very active in the 60's, I didn't spend a lot of time on the air for 20 years or so while getting on with life. I renewed my ham radio interest in 1986 after moving to North Carolina, and then really started being active when it became possible to marry my radios to my personal computers. (When I got active with digital modes it was almost like being a brand new ham again after all those years.)

I prefer QSLs via the ARRL Logbook of the World, and upload new QSOs at least every week or so. I will return direct QSLs. DX stations: Please use the bureau. I will do the same.

My main operating interests are PSK31, the JT modes and other digital modes. Lately I've been ragchewing on SSB as well. I resisted the urge to chase DX for 50 years, but finally succumbed a few years ago and started chasing new countries (currently up to 276 countries confirmed).

Other interests and biography (maybe we have some things in common to talk about): Travel and sightseeing, computer programming, astronomy and space exploration, trains.

I went to college in South Dakota and grad school at Purdue in Indiana, and have lived in Delaware, Indiana, Missouri and North Carolina ever since. However I was able to retain my original callsign during all those years.

Retired since 2000, I spent most of my career as a mainframe computer systems programmer in the airline industry. Since I love to travel, those jobs provided wonderful opportunities to do so.
